The Avengers: Age of Ultron is still over a year away from release, but that won't stop fans from wondering how Marvel Studios is going to follow up the monster success of 2012's The Avengers. According to one of the sequel's stars, Scarlett Johansson, fans needn't worry, because writer-director Joss Whedon's Age of Ultron script is "totally solid."
"I was just amazed [with the script]," Johansson told Collider."Joss is something else, he really is. He locks himself away for God knows how long; I think he has the dark circles to prove it. [He] just came out with something totally solid. I was really impressed by his ability to make this ever-expanding Marvel universe feel very close-knit and cerebral and progressive. I mean this movie feels like the continuation of The Avengers, it doesn’t feel like a tag-on or the rehashed version or just 'let’s throw a bunch of new »

With the premiere of "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" tonight and the press for it in full swing, a bunch of information about both "Avengers: Age of Ultron" and Marvel films in general has started coming out from various press conferences and interviews. Amongst the facts gleaned:
The fact that Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) hasn't appeared in any previous Phase Two film will be addressed in "Avengers: Age of Ultron" and both he and Mark Ruffalo's Hulk will have "very big parts" in the follow-up as the pair didn't get their own standalone films.
Asked if Clark Gregg's Agent Coulson could appear, Feige says "I probably shouldn't answer for any number of reasons." He also confirmed Anthony Mackie's Falcon will Not appear in 'Ultron' - something Mackie himself suspected as much this week in a recent interview.

Marvel's Kevin Feige has been doing press all week for the upcoming Captain America: The Winter Soldier, where he has also been giving updates on the highly-anticipated Avengers: Age of Ultron.

When Captain America: The Winter Soldier debuts in theaters April 4, fans will be introduced to a brand new member of the Marvel cinematic universe in Sam Wilson, a.k.a. The Falcon, played by the incredibly talented Anthony Mackie. This character is steeped in Marvel lore, dating back to 1969 when he debuted as mainstream comics' first African-American superhero. With the inclusion of Falcon in the upcoming Marvel Phase Two sequel, surely Marvel has plans to utilize him again, right? According to Anthony Mackie himself, that may not be the case.
I had the chance to speak with the actor yesterday at the Captain America: The Winter Soldier junket, and I had to ask whether or not he will be appearing in Avengers: Age of Ultron. The actor revealed in February that he has been actively asking the powers that be at Marvel whether or not The Falcon will soar again, »

Almost three decades after Larry Kramer's play "The Normal Heart" debuted in 1985, this visceral look at the early days of the AIDS crisis is finally getting a screen adaptation. Ryan Murphy ("American Horror Story," "Glee") has assembled a top-notch cast for this telefilm that debuts on HBO on May 25. (Watch the trailer below.)

After 2012′s The Avengers made $1.5 Billion worldwide, shattering box office records, fan expectations and the collective minds of the entire globe, it’s safe to say that the bar has been set pretty high for its sequel.
